Autumn Reflection, Loch Drunkie, Trossachs – Stuart Lamont
Spectacular shot, and plenty more where that came from! Checkout Stuart’s website http://www.stuartlamont.co.uk/ - here are a few more of my faves:
I’ve been taking photo’s on and off now for over 25 years, but most of that time I was taking photographs of the kids and family, it wasn’t till I joined the local camera club in 2004 that my interest in Landscape photography developed. I drew great inspiration from fellow members and I knew that this was the type of photography I wanted to do.
This shot was taken late October last year, I was actually out for a Sunrise shot at a different location a few miles away, however all of a sudden I was surrounded by about 8 other photographers who had the same idea. I decided that I would relocate, I had been to this loch before but when I drove down the hill on that particular morning the scene before me just took my breath away, the Loch was so still and the reflection was like a mirror, the colour of the trees also gave the image a boost, I couldn’t get the camera bag & tripod out of the boot quick enough and immediately headed to the loch side, this is actually a vertical panoramic shot, 4 x shots were taken and stitched in Photoshop to produce the image, I wanted to capture the whole loch side without any distortion so I thought this would be the best way of doing it rather than just one wide-angle shot, the clouds look like the image was a long exposure due the soft feel to them. The 4 x images were then processed in Lightroom 4 and then stitched in CS5 to produce the final shot.
